The Cure lines up US tour, new album

Posted June 25th, 2007 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

I just don’t know how to feel about Cure news at this point. For a band that started threatening to break up back in 1985, The Cure refuses to go away. When was the last great Cure record? 1989. That was almost 20 years ago. Not a good sign for things to come. The band’s 2004 self-titled record was rubbish on top of the fact that it was produced by a nu-metal fruitcake. The music can be decent, but Smith just can’t write lyrics anymore. Regardless, the band is trudging forward with another line-up change and its 13th, as-yet-untitled studio album due this fall on Geffen. A tour is already in place for the US and Canada.
